SQL Server Express edition as Application Database

#1

Hi , Is it possible to use SQL Server as the Application database (To store Metabase metadata)?

I did check most of documentation and did not find it other than Postgresql and Mysql?

Any workarounds ? please suggest

No. Workaround is to use MySQL or Postgres.

Thanks for quick response. Any future plans to support?

I’m just a user, so not involved directly. I’d say the chance of it happening are close to zero! There’s not much benefit and given the limited development resources, they’d be better spending the time on improvements elsewhere.
My first choice is always MS SQL for small jobs, but I’ve had no problems switching to MySQL to use Metabase. The tools aren’t as well polished, but the SQL is very similar.

Thanks and completely understand.

With limited resources i think they are doing very great job.
